Video: No New Natural Gas Pipelines Lobby Day Protest in Richmond, Virginia

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

As the representative from the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) points out: 1) "right now, we're facing unprecedented expansion of natural gas infrastructure in the state of Virginia;" 2) we're talking about a "$17 billion investment in natural gas infrastructure at a time we know we need to be moving toward solar and wind to avoid the worst impacts of climate change;" 3) this would mostly be "fracked" natural gas (which is seriously problematic in and of itself, i'd add); and 4) "we either don't need these pipelines, or our neighbors to the west who are already suffering terribly from this onslaught of fracking that's hit their state are going to see that quadruple over the next few years." Not acceptable.
